A completed painting

Finally finished a painting. It's been some time but this is complete. This is for my dear friend Ryan. Some of you may have read the previous explanation of where the image came from. This is what I worked out. It's a bit more illustrative than I originally intended but I feel good about where it's at.

This the last stage I posted. It was a pretty dramatic shift with the line work. At times I wish I wasn't so prone to illustrative styles but I figure I need to play to my strengths.

More to come. One more abstract to complete then I'm on to some realism paintings. Much smaller size so I think that will help a lot.
